How to Make a Seashell Bridal Bouquet

By Sandra Canfield



Would you like to make a seashell bridal bouquet for yourself or for the bride? Follow these simple instructions.



Materials Needed:

Wood Dowel cut to the desired length

Foam ball 3" to 4" in diameter

White seashells (bubble shells, caycay shells, nassa shells or any other shells you desire

Hot glue (high temperature)

Hot glue gun

BOND 527 Multi-Purpose Cement Glue

Pearls or Swarovski Crystals for accent

Satin ribbon

Organza ribbon



Cut your dowel to the desired length and insert it into the center of the foam ball. The dowel can easily be pushed into the foam. Remove dowel, fill hole with hot glue and re-insert dowel into the foam ball. Let dry.



Apply seashells with hot glue as pictured or create your own design Bouquet Photos.



Once you have all the shells attached, apply the pearl or swarovski crystals for accent throughout the shells. This helps to hide any foam that is showing through. Use the BOND 527 Multi-Purpose Cement Glue for the accents.



Let the bouquet sit overnight.



Wrap the satin ribbon around the dowel to the top of the boquet and then tie on your organza ribbon.



This is a time-consuming project but the results are well worth the effort.
